We have been using custom coding to integrate WooCommerce and Clickbank so that we could import products from Clickbank, submit new products to Clickbank, fully manage the sales and secure delivery process and automatically create an account for the customer using details from Clickbank.
WooCommerce does what it does and does it well, but the ability for our clients to be able to use Clickbank as if it were a payment gateway is very valuable for upselling, future sales and creating accounts for each client so they can easily be mailed, upsold, receive support etc.
Earlier this week, we released our coding as a WordPress Plugin.
The idea es that people can pay with clickbank, so they can be refered by affiliates and clickbank network. And when they pay they have access to our woocommerce downloads area, or members area, or courses with sensei.
I think this is what everyone voting here wants or needs
And the woo admins kind of dont get it, they see it as a complete solution.
Picture this: affilaites send you a sale to your sales page
yes they only can buy 1 product,
but after that, they are on your woo members area, then you can sell them more
and you can use paypal for your shopping cart. For people that are already on your website
but clickbank is great to bring new customers and sales

I'm not quite understanding what people want here. Clickbank is an integrated solution. They list the product, sell the product, pay affiliates, pay VAT tax, etc. Do you want WooCommerce to be a catalog of items? And from that catalog people click to Clickbank to purchase the item?
If so, that can already be done with external products: http://bobwp.com/setting-up-external-products-and-affiliates-in-woocommerce/
The thing is I only sell 4 recurring products using Woocommerce + Subscriptions Plugin.
And I really want to use Clickbank to accept payments.
The problem is I can't ditch Woocommerce because it's integrated into my site's theme.
Can anyone make a simple CB plugin for Woocommerce for those of use who don't sell a lot of products and can manually add & configure each one in CB.
I would gladly pay for something like this.

I would like to see Woo integrate ClickBank into WooCommerce

Hi all, I'm selling my video courses behind a paywall (using PayPal/woothemes Peddlar and Woothemes Sensei) at http://www.easyproblinds.com
Dan from Woothemes, explained that there isn't anything to integrate with Clickbank (yet), although he did suggest seeking help from an Affiliated Woo Worker or post a job on 'Codeable' or 'Tweaky'
Just an idea, but does anyone else have a similar need and want to split the cost on some custom help with me?

Integration with ClickBank is problematic because ClickBank doesn't support cart - i.e. you cannot combine multiple products into one order. How would you address this if you had ClickBank integration?
Is there a plugin available that integrates Clickbank with woocommerce?
Yes, I am looking for a Clickbank Integration as well.. this is a MUST-HAVE!
Yes, clickbank is huge, we need the integration.
If Clickbank was an option I think you'd find thousands of new customers almost overnight. Many people involved in online marketing use Clickbank because of it's built in affiliate program options - brilliant. But for most it's too hard to figure out how to do the cart thing -
I use Woo for my Blog, nothing more - because I can't "sell" with WooCommerce; therefore my sales sites are NOT Woo.
And what is also nice about clickbank is that they handle the client administration, so you don't have to worry about invoicing, vat, etc. They also provide a simple support desk that you can use to help your clients.
Yes please. I have products on ClickBank and would like to sell through woocommerce too while allowing affiliates to still collect commissions on woocommerce sales.
Please add support for the clickbank payment processor. It's much needed as it helps vendors to leverage the clickbank marketplace and affiliate program.
yes please! :)

I'd also like to see ClickBank integration with WooCommerce.
Indeed, many people sell digital products via Clickbank and it'd be nice to have a simple way to integrate this with the WooCommerce. The challenges that would need to be addressed:
- Correct tracking of clickbank affiliate links - e.g. a customer is sent to one of my product by affiliate 1 and to another product by affiliate 2. When the customer purchases both products, both affiliates should have commissions registered in Clickbank.
- Clickbank acts as a reseller, so it handles the payment processing, VAT, etc. Therefore, the WooCommerce store would only act basically as a catalogue of products and the products would be still sold via clickbank. Clickbank acts as a reseller, so it buys products at wholesale price (~92%) and resells them at 100% price.
- I'm not sure how the refund would be handled, probably it's best to do it entirely at Clickbank (like now) and send an update to WooCommerce for the proper figures in the reports.
- any other...?
This is a must for my clients
